9:20 am
20 women ithe senate now. what is interesting is the fivelican number goes from to four. the democratic number goes to whihich i do think reflects with ther problem constituency that the republican with women. is refreshing to sethese women winning because -- not bebecause they a are the daughtf or the widow of. they are creatining political of irannd it is remarkable. what happens if john kerry becomes secretary of state in massachusetts? scott brown pop back into the senate? i think you have to consider that. he is still viable. the question as, who cld the up if john kerry lees? i think he ran the best race
9:21 am
ountry and he lost. warren is going to be the future. be one of the to of the new democratic congress, and i can see her at level inntial politics are really soon. the other really interesting the was i thought was this initiative in -- it is not a party issue, but to have assisted suicide legalized, it failed, and i tnk that is bebecause doctors who are possible -- extremely powerful in the state opposed it. >> i want to go back to the question of the hisispanic vote.
